Louie Gohmert: If Holder ignores another congressional subpoena, it’s time to defund the DOJ

report this ad

Congress hasn’t subpoenaed Holder yet, but Gohmert says if Holder refuses to come before Congress voluntarily and explain why he lied about investigating journalists, and then ignores a subpoena to do the same, then Gohmert says Congress should defund the DOJ until it gets justice. And by ‘justice’ he means a DOJ that cares as much about radical Islamic terrorists as they do about going after journalists like James Rosen.

    How about de-funding the IRS while you’re at it?

    • Orangeone

      rick2340 And the EPA, the NSA, and the DOE too.

      • Keyes

        Orangeone rick2340 
        …and the UN.

        • Orangeone

          Keyes Orangeone rick2340 Yes! Actually defund the hole darn lot of it. Shut the gov’t down period.

          If you do that, all those obamaphones will stop working and the welfare checks will cease.  All the obamessiah’s voters will just have to go out and get jobs and get back to work.

          yazz55 Orangeone Keyes rick2340 No, it’ll be the next episode of Walking Dead. Same show but the zombies will all carrying their nonfunctional EBT cards like some kind of divining rods.

      • Dr. Strangelove

        Orangeone rick2340 You forgot HSUS

        • Orangeone

          Dr. Strangelove Orangeone rick2340 Ah yes, Sebelius’ DHHS

  • They’ve found him in contempt once, and ignoring subpoenas.  The guy is the highest “law enforcement” official in the land- he’s disobeying the law.  Would it not be time to remove him physically from the office in handcuffs?  Don’t answer that- I know no one has quite the guts for that.
    But I appreciate Gohmert on this.

    • badbadlibs

      AmericanborninCanada Wait a minute, I heard from a very reliable source, a professor no less, that holder is the “law GIVER” of this country. Yep, that’s right, holder is the law giver along with Moses. I know, I know, it sounds like I’m making this up…. 😉

    • Orangeone

      AmericanborninCanada Well when you are charged with investigating yourself and your subordinate is responsible to charge you with contempt, what do you expect? Who set up this insane reporting structure?
      Gohmert and Stockman just might have the guts to haul his arse out in handcuffs.

  • badbadlibs

    The only problem with a “new” AG is that ovomit will be the one doing the appointing. I don’t know if it’s humanly possible to pick someone worse then holder, but if there’s one out there, ovomit will find them.

    • bahamianhoosier

      badbadlibs Valerie J is my vote. As fall back in Chuck-U Shumer, Dicky Durbin, or “Ilike12yrolds” Menendez. Could be worse I suppose

      • badbadlibs

        bahamianhoosier What a list of rotten humanity.

  • mike3e4r7

    The momentum and evidence against this administration is building by the day.  What’s preventing things from going to the next level?  John Boehner.  Get the F out of the way Boehner, you worthless @*((^!!!

  • mike3e4r7

    At some point the House GOP needs to have an intervention with Boehner.  Boehner, you need help.  It’s time for you to step down.
    P.S.  You’ve gotta think, with all the spying being revealed, including spying on Congress, that the usurpers have got something on Boehner.

    • Orangeone

      mike3e4r7 Is Boehner drinking with Graham?  The two of them look drunk most days.

      • mike3e4r7

        Could be.  I passed a drunken homeless guy at the park the other day, and he seemed to have more of a grasp on reality than those two clowns.

        • Orangeone

          mike3e4r7 Brilliant!

        • salty walty

          Orangeone mike3e4r7 Ditto

      • Keyes

        Orangeone mike3e4r7 
        I am friends with a guy that talked with Graham recently, in the morning, and he said Graham was drunk.

        • Orangeone

          Keyes Orangeone mike3e4r7 Doesn’t surprise me at all.

        • Keyes

          Orangeone Keyes mike3e4r7 
          Me neither.

    • DeborahClemence

      mike3e4r7     We need Trey Gowdy or Louie Gohmert as Speaker… somebody with a backbone!  Boehner is just as responsible for the mess we are in as the Democrats!

      • Orangeone

        DeborahClemence mike3e4r7 Gohmert at Speaker would be outstanding!  We need Gowdy on Oversight.

      • mike3e4r7

        Totally agree!

  • salty walty

    2014 is very important. More Gohmerts, Gowdys, and Cruz is the Conservatives’ only hope.

    • CalCoolidge

      salty walty Need them in the Senate, more than the House.

    • kong1967

      salty walty  The Republican establishment will probably fund the Democrats running against these guys.  They don’t want change.  They don’t want to upset the applecart and “good ‘ol boys” network.

      • GetWhatYouPayFor

        kong1967 salty walty  Karl Rove already has the apparatus in place. Tea Party is enemy number one. Obama they can coexist with and get a slice of the pie……..so they believe.

  • tshtsh

    If Holder goes, b.o. will replace him with an expert sharia law iman.

    • CalCoolidge

      tshtsh Jeremiah Wright

      • badbadlibs

        CalCoolidge tshtsh I think wright is firmly entrenched under the bus. Comrade Obama threw him under one and even wright got ticked. He let it be known that when he met comrade Obama he was steeped in islam.

        • Dr. Strangelove

          badbadlibs CalCoolidge tshtsh 0 probably has dirt on Wright to prevent him from coming out. Pun intended.

    • kong1967

      tshtsh  Exactly.  It’ll be a crook who will use the position as a political battering ram just like Holder.   
      The only way to stop this nonsense is to remove Obama from the WH.  Even then you have Biden, who will proabably do the same.

      • Keyes

        kong1967 tshtsh 
        Remove them both as O is a usurper, which invalidates the whole ticket.

        • kong1967

          Keyes We can dream, but dreams keep ya going.

        • Keyes

          kong1967 Keyes 
          Well, I do look young for my age!

      • Dr. Strangelove

        kong1967 tshtsh It’s been pointed out numerous times that “Shotgun” Joe is 0’s insurance policy. He’d get enough sympathy votes for the martyred saint to make LBJ look like a piker.

  • kong1967

    Holder didn’t go after the administration’s records because the leaks were just an excuse to go after the media.  Holder had no intention of finding out who made the leaks.  He wanted to target the press and make them fearful of printing anything that’s unfavorable to Obama.

  • MacWell

    Of course you know that none of what we want will happen unless we the people come out en-mass next year. We must stop supporting  and electing career politicians and lawyers to Congress, it wasn’t intended to be this way. Back to the basics.

    • bahamianhoosier

      MacWell I think the exact same!! If we conservative red-blooded Stars-&-Stripes lovin’ folk do not start a serious charge that leads to the ballot box and the steps of the Capital and the White House we are done. Stick a fork in us done!! And I promise this! If a month goes by with nothing real coming from Congress going after Holder Sebillius Hitlery & Bammy the Bozo I will NEVER again cast a vote for any individual currently in DC. Paul Rubio & Cruz included! If this all passes with the treachery that is being done to our nation and our constitution I am done with each and EVERY one of them!! We have to make this happen!!

      • applepie101

        The kicker was hearing Bob Dole say that the GOP has moved too far to the right. That just indicates where HE is standing.

  • GetWhatYouPayFor

    Obama has the data and if damning data does not exist, he has the media who will lie and intimidate and destroy the family, if need be, of anyone who dares question him. It is all about the money that provides the power and he has vast sums, both Domestic and Global, to carry out his mission. That damn USA Constitution and Republic form of Government is the only obstacle which stands in the way of the Globalists from doing their deed swiftly and relatively bloodless. He is also prepared to do the deed violently if need be, but that is not the plan. Unfortunately, there are few places or people to turn to, that haven’t been bought or compromised or have both the courage and skill to rally the resistance. The one I am most confident about is a diminutive woman from Alaska, who just refuses to go away. If a few big money patriots get a clue and help build a coalition, we have a shot. The bunker they fight from will have to be the absolute best, and the coalition very powerful. It is that bad.

  • Navigator1924

    I think the entire DOJ should be fired.

    • kimber1911

      Navigator1924  IMMEDIATELY !!!!!

      • doofuschmartz

        Yesterday…and then indicted, convicted, and incarcerated…not necessarily in that order…

  • tinlizzieowner

    http://therightscoop.com/louie-gohmert-if-holder-ignores-another-congressional-subpoena-its-time-to-defund-the-doj/
    It was time to defund Holder’s ‘Just-Us’ Dept. when he (and Obama) refused to investigate their pals in the New Black Panther Party. That should have been the first clue of the arrogant, (Chicago style) ‘thuggery’ that was on the way.

    • Keyes

      tinlizzieowner 
      Agreed. Maybe if they’d done that we would have had a shot at an honest election..although that is tough with someone on the ballot who was not eligible in the first place.

  • OldmanRick

    For all the good the current DOJ does, it might as well be defunded.

    • Keyes

      OldmanRick 
      Agreed. We’d be better disbanding it all together.

      • PoCoTex

        Keyes OldmanRick  Next, disband the other blood-suckers: the IRS, the EPA, and the DOE.

        • Dr. Strangelove

          PoCoTex Keyes OldmanRick And which Republican is going to lead this fight? Cryboehner? Can they herd enough RINO’s together for a vote?

  • agas84363

    look at holder…..he’s stoned!

    • Dr. Strangelove

      agas84363 Drunk on power.

  • Dr. Strangelove

    Levin has been talking about how the mask and then the gloves are going to come off when the leftoids are backed into a corner. Look at that arrogant little smirk on Holder’s face. Look at the way the First Wookie told off that lesbo who tried to corner her. I believe the mask is slipping already.

  • Who is calling?

    A win win for Americans,  save freedom and money.

  • kimber1911

    Screw the DOJ.. They should all go to jail go directly to jail do not collect any more money from the tax payers and and they should take that lying sneaking boss of theirs with them !

  • I’ve had enough of this tough talk from the republican Congress, let’s see some ACTION!

    • EricDickinson

      MadJack Action starts with us…call email drive down…what ever it takes!

  • misterlogic0013

    Love his optimism, guarded although straight forward .. most level headed Americans witnessing truth emerging. Actions speak louder than words .. Holder a stool for greater cause = big mess, will take large effort to restore America to something  recognizable , now or never comes to mind, good start. Action speaks louder than words, can say Holder is gone? A body blow to OB / America deserves = many more to come, will eventually sell out OB himself. Valerie Jarret, Michele, in the middle of this mess .. you betcha  .. wild ride ahead / been here .. started in Indianola Iowa a balloon field, in the rain .. A movement greater than itself = Tea Party / Sarah Palin = accountability .. you betcha

  • PaulLeslie

    I’ll say “amen” to MadJack and add that I’ve worn out e-mail, phone calls, letters and town hall meetings with my representatives trying to get them to fight for America.
    My former representative talked about his “patriotic colleagues across the aisle” (meaning progressive democrats) which only reinforced my belief that the repubs are clueless to the threat facing America from this bunch of socialists and don’t understand that we are on the verge of being turned into a tyrannical State.

  • tinkerthinker

    I agree! If Holder can’t come before congress and give the info desired then there are no checks and balances and that is not the DOJ any more…it is something else now and needs to be defunded.

    • Lou Whow

      tinkerthinker  
      With jail time too

  • applepie101

    Amen! But the Boehner-run congress won’t allow it, so Louis Gohmert and Ted Cruz are voices crying in the wilderness. 
    Step away from that sinking party and set up your own! These two are the only men who have any constitutional principles left.

    • EricDickinson

      applepie101 Trey Gowdy does also!

  • JohnDavidson1

    James Rosen is famous, but I wonder how many of us regular folks have been targeted already.

    • tinkerthinker

      JohnDavidson1  I know we have, since my hubby is working in Venezuela.

  • Lou Whow

    If you ignore a subpoena you go to jail don’t you?
    Oh, that’s right. Only us peons go to jail over stuff like that. And because we’d be in jail we’d be defunded as well.

  • BRwoman

    Keep calling, emailing, contacting your reps, DON’T LET UP…… These people can’t get away with this!!!  And we can’t live through 3 1/2  more years of it!!

  • SheerPolitics

    Defund DOJ?! How about arresting Holder?

  • DebbyX

    We need a change?  Like pelosi said, we need to drain the swamp!

  • gadjotman

    This administration is flat out laughing at you (congress). They are going to continue making a mockery of our way of life, our laws, our founding principles……..do something about it before it is too late for all of us!

  • Impeachment is an Option

    This swamp just keeps getting fuller and fuller of scum.  So few Good people still let in Congress/House/Supreme Court.  This just might explain the Supreme Court’s decision on Obbiecare.   I wonder what they had on each of them, especially Roberts to make him jump ship to their side.  Now if people would only realize that a tax can not be approved of by the Senate, that it has to come from the House to be approved by the Senate than Obbiecare is illegal.  Why no one has attack it this way is beyond me.  But we now know without a shadow of a doubt that our Government is spying on us and using the knowledge it gains against us.

  • Who is calling?

    sadly the mind of the new man is the swamp but we’ve learned to build a sower for the swamp to live in.
